I keep hearing being pregnant in the summer really sucks. I guess it depends on where you live, but I live in New England, and it gets pretty humid here during the summer. I am miserable in the summer anyways, nevermind being

Both of mine are winter babies, but I think I would be miserable being due in summer.

My first was in September and I was miserable in the summer but I pretty much stayed in AC all day. The worst was the ankle swelling because of the humidity. My next one was born in March which I thought was the easiest. I then had 3 boys in the Fall/ Winter months and they werent nearly as bad as the summer baby but I have to say I am looking forward to a July baby

Both my boys were due at the end of the summer, It was not so bad but I don't know any different. I also live in MI (the humidity was bad this past summer but not normally) Hopefully this summer is not as bad as last!

Well i will be having the baby first week of july so it will only be really hot for June. I am on the east coast, Philadelphia. Its better than being due August, September or October i think. I had a January baby and was sick in the summer with morning sickness so that wasn't fun either!!

I'm kind of dreading it. I'm in NE too - and it can get HOT and muggy in July. Both my boys are February babes - I'm kind of dreading the fact that I have NO maternity summer clothes. Most of my stuff is cords and jeans.

I'm secretly hoping this babe will come a bit early like DS2. I'm a teacher and planning on working all year - so I'll be ready for the babe to come as soon as I'm done in late June. Either way, I'm having a C and my due date is 7/11. So I'm hoping for a baby by the 5th or 6th :)

it gets very hot where i am (last summer was hottest on record -most over 90 days) it is still warm mid November. I am not worried about it. i'll be in the ac regardless by May lol. Up to may its not too bad. it doesn't really get humid where i am until i think June so it will be end. I don't plan on being pregnant much into July (probably due 7/7)..

My 2nd was born in Las Vegas at the end of June. The nurse told me the afternoon I was in labor that the temp was 116. It was HOT the entire month and I was absolutely miserable to be honest. But that was Las Vegas.

My 3rd was born in northern Minnesota (where I am now) in early September. The humidity here is crazy but I managed. It definitely sucked. But early July is nothing next to being pregnant ALL SUMMER last time :o)
